August 30, 2018


Congratulations to Alannah Walsh, Mia Ryan and Emma Osborne who have been selected for the South East u18 squad for the interprovincial to be played at the end of September. Emily Kavanagh has been chosen for the Munster u18 interprovincial panel so well done to her too. It is a fantastic achievement for all the girls involved to be representing both their school and clubs at this level.
Those Ursuline students who play with the Munster u16 panel, Annabelle Ryan, Kate Ryan and Andrea and Alex Halley were thrilled to meet some of their heroes from the Irish Women’s Hockey team. The World Silver Medalists Lena Tice and Gillian Pinder posed for photos with the U16 panel and it was a fantastic opportunity for the Ursuline students on the squad to see what can be achieved by Irish sports women competing at the highest international level. Inspiration for the future no doubt.

A huge congratulations to Leaving Cert student and tennis ace Katie Morrissey who won the Girls Singles u18 William Fry Junior Lawn Tennis Championships of Ireland 2018. This competition was hosted by the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club and Katie put in a stellar performance on court to win this prestigious title.

Leaving Cert Class, 2018

The students and staff of the Ursuline would like to extend their best wishes to the Leaving Cert class of 2018. They were a great year group who achieved highly in their state exams. They deserve every success that comes their way.

Welcome Back

Welcome back to all the staff and students and here’s hoping that the forthcoming academic year will be both fruitful and happy for everyone. An especially warm welcome must be extended to the newest Ursuline recruits. First Years began their secondary school journey on Thursday August 30. In the morning there was an induction given by the Principal, Vice Principals and the first year class tutors. Then in the afternoon it was fun and games organised by the PE Department. There was a rounders competition for the new first year classes giving them ample opportunity to stretch their legs, run free, and get to know each in a relaxed, less formal manner. As is Ursuline tradition there was a nice treat to round off their very first day.
